Great Glamping experience!
We took our granddaughters, ages 4 & 9, for an overnight stay in this tipi. The property manager was very responsive to questions prior to our arrival. Everything we needed for a great outdoor experience was there, without the sleeping-on-the-ground part. The bathroom was clean, the beds were comfortable and the cooking station had even more supplies than we expected. The hot tub was a big hit too. Access to the fruit and vegetables (peas and strawberries-yum) growing in the garden was a nice touch as well. We'll be back!!
We're glad you and your Family enjoyed yourselves!
amazing family get away
This place is an amazing family getaway the owner are delightful! The showers are hot and the hot tubs are hotter the kitchen comes fully stock with everything you need to cook. The sleeping arrangement are very clean and warm and the tipi feels so roomy.
We're glad you and your Family had a great stay! Hope to see you all again soon.
We stayed in the tipi over memorial weekend. We had a totally relaxing time. The bed was comfortable. The hot tub was great. Was the perfect secluded getaway.
We're happy you had a good time and hope to have you back again!
My favorite place to stay
I have stayed at this Tipi twice, as well as one of the owners' other cabins. The Tipi experience is absolutely wonderful. "Glamping" at its finest! The bath house was clean and novel to use, and the hot tub was in perfect working order, totally secluded, and provided a great venue for watching the shooting stars. The Tipi itself is very comfortable, with a little fire pit right inside. Very spacious and fun to be in. My boyfriend and I love this place and will always have fond memories of being here.
We are in the process of getting the teepee ready. We are hoping to have it up within a month or so. If you are interested in staying in it again sometime.
Recent stay at the tipi
We recently spent a night in the tipi. We expected a fairly rustic experience, and that is what we had. We enjoyed the bathhouse, it was well designed and nicely maintained. The kitchen area was functional. We expected mosquitoes, but we didn't expect 15 bites each in one night even with a mosquito coil, citronella candle, and mosquito repellant. We also didn't expect the quarter-sized wolf spider under the pillow. We were excited to hear there was wifi, but we could not find a signal during our stay. We walked around the property looking for a signal while trying to stay out of the cabin private areas but could not find one. One thing we didn't know, and wasn't included in the listing, was that the nearest cell signal for AT&T and carriers other than Verizon was 24 miles away. We also didn't know that the tipi came with its own resident cat. Kitty was friendly and generally well behaved, but I have bad allergies, so it was a huge problem for us since the bed covers and pillows were covered in orange cat hair. It was also a problem when kitty jumped up on the bed, startling us awake at 4 am, 5 am, 6 am, and 7:15 am. Without cell service, it was impossible to contact the owners, so we did not stay the second night. I notified the owners via e-mail the evening of 7/14 and have not heard back from them.
Staying in our beautiful Tipi is indeed a unique experience. It is called GLAMPING (short for glorified camping). Anyone camping, whether it is in a tent, tipi, yurt, etc. has to be realistic and expect mosquitoes, bugs, etc. God put them on this earth, and, as much as I wish I could, I cannot make them go away. That is why we recommended to you that you put on mosquito repellent, not just bring it.
As far as a “wolf spider” found in your bed, really? I had to look it up online just to see what you were talking about. You certainly pulled out a name that sounds scary. I must say, that I have lived in this area for 18 years, and never have I seen a “wolf spider.” Hmm?
Yes, wifi can be an issue out in the woods. We have a satellite system here and sometimes the signal is strong and sometimes it is weak, depending on the weather.
Yes, we do have a cabin cat. Her name is Pita and she loves people. We took her away for a while thinking she might be a pest, but we had so many requests from our repeat customers that we bring her back as they missed her. Sadly enough, because of your complaint, we will likely take her away again.
I am sorry your experience was not entirely a pleasant one for you. I would strongly recommend that the next time you want to come to the mountains for a get-a-way, you look to stay in a traditional cabin and not a “glamping” experience.
Memorable Weekend Getaway
Our family just returned from a great weekend stay in the tipi and are already talking about returning next year. The tipi is quite spacious and nicely/simply appointed (the pictures capture it well). It has a very comfortable bed with down comforter and our two kids (ages 2 and 6) slept on the cots with sleeping bags (provided).
The kitchen area was equipped with all we needed, including a new gas stovetop and small fridge (we brought plates, utensils, etc, though much of that was already in the kitchen as well). And the bath house was very clean and pleasant to use with plenty of clean, white towels. We hung out around the fire pit every night and were pleased to find no mosquitos! We are used to tent camping, so this was a fun, less rustic alternative for us.
Bill came by a couple times and was very kind and helpful, giving us good advise on hiking options. We went on some great hikes in the area, including to Packwood Lake, Mt Saint Helens (Windy Ridge) and -- our favorite -- Mount Rainier's Skyline Trail Loop at Paradise Inn. The drive to Paradise Inn was about 1 hour, but it was beautiful taking route Route 12 past Packwood and then 123/Steven's Canyon Road. Fields of wildflowers and stunning views of Rainier and the snow-capped Goat Rocks made for an amazing day of hiking. It is crowded (I would certainly avoid going on a weekend) but the views along the entire trail are fantastic.
There is so much more we want to explore in the area - we can't wait to return next summer. Even our 2 year old is missing it -- so far every night since we've been back she tells us "i want tipi, i want tipi!")
We are delighted that you and your children had a great time at the tipi. It is such a unique experience for them and the kid that is all of us adults as well! Please bring them back anytime!
